Grand Theft Auto Online Goes Live Tomorrow Morning


You waited. Now it’s here…almost.

Grand Theft Auto V launched two weeks ago sans its multiplayer component. Tomorrow morning, more specifically around 7AM EST, the title update for Grand Theft Auto Online will be available to download for anyone who owns Grand Theft Auto V.

The announcement came alongside a ton of guidelines given by Rockstar in a lengthy blog post earlier tonight. The publisher isn’t entirely sure when the online component will launch, but suggests it will be available the morning of October 1st.

Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with your copy of Grand Theft Auto V. On October 1st there will be a small downloadable Title Update released on PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE. Upon installation of that Title Update, direct access to begin GTA Online will be unlocked in your GTAV game menu. You will be able to jump right into GTA Online via the 4th (bottom) slot in your GTAV character wheel. We’ve received many questions asking for a specific confirmation of what exact time GTA Online will be available but of course this is contingent on both Title Updates becoming available on each console’s network. As a general timeframe, we do expect the Title Update to become available on PSN and Xbox LIVE starting around 7AM ET tomorrow morning, and your best bet is to stay tuned throughout the day here at the Rockstar Newswire and by following us on Twitter and Facebook where we will be keeping everyone updated.
